Four Suits

Posted in Trifecta, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on April 8, 2013







The program tonight is an exercise in alchemy and intuition. A deck of cards is being passed around the circle. When it reaches you, please take one. Close your first two eyes, and look at this card with your third eye. It is about what the card sees in you, and not what you see in the card.

Get in alphabetical order, based on the third letter of your last name. Starting with A, count off into groups of four. We will break into these groups of four.

What the card finds in you can be one of several things. It can be a comment about how you feel about life. It can be a song, a poem, a gesture. It does not have to make sense.

We are using ordinary cards for this exercise. These correspond to the minor acana of the tarot deck.

These four groups are:
clubs – wands – earth
diamonds – pentacles – air
hearts – cups – water
spades – swords – fire

One person will allow the card to share what it finds. Remember, this can be a comment, a poem, a song, or a gesture. When the first person is through, the person to his left will share what the card finds.

When you are through with the first round, you can hand the card to the person on your right. The group will go again, with the second card telling the story it finds. This will continue for four rounds, until all four persons have been explored by the four cards.

Before you gather, you are invited to go to the dessert table, and get a plate of dessert. This exercise in intuition will be conducted over dessert.

We will not meet in the large circle again tonight. When the small groups are finished, the heartweaving is over. You can take as much time, or as little time, as you want.

Please get a plate of dessert, and meet in your group of four. Blessed Be.

    This sounds like a great party game. Certainly more fun than charades.

    Thanks for linking up!

    Love your photos and the exercise sounds pretty interesting. It’s almost like a writing prompt, no? Only a prompt of the intuition asking us to read what is there.

    How interesting. Guidelines to an exercise with friends. What an interesting night this must be!

    What a very different take on the prompt! I’d love to know more about the attendees, and the answers the cards gave them.

    sounds like fun. I’ll have to get a group. I like the part “what the card sees in you”. Take care.
